Helios Lipsi
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Lipsi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We had a wonderful week on Lipsi.The Island is very peaceful,the scenery gentle and the beaches are really nice.The colour of the sea at Platis Yialos is something else.Everywhere is easily accessible ,Monasteries and churches abound.The people are very friendly and the food is of a very high standard,local produce is used as much as possible.We visited Dimitris Farm which is now run by his son Kosta.The farm is totally organic and produces wonderful fruit and vegetables,olive oil,cheese and wine,Kosta will show you round his farm and is an inspiration as to how farms should be managed.
What made our holiday so special was our stay at Helios Hotel.The accommodation is second to none,very clean and tastefully decorated.George is the kindest most heartwarming person We have ever met.His generosity and zest for life is inspirational.He gave us local cheeses for breakfast,cooked for us in the evening's and on our last night George and his beautiful wife Lisa cooked a fabulous meal for all the guests,goat,moussaka,greek salad,potatoes and fried courgettes.The fridge was also stocked fully upon arrival.The garden is lovely to sit in,we really enjoyed watching the little owls on the walls.
It was a privilege to stay at Helios and meet George,his wife and youngest son and for this we will return.
Thankyou George from our hearts

Room Tip: Very comfy rooms,peaceful at night.

Thank you very much Giorgos (and Deni!) for the wonderful stay. We felt welcomed like never before! You have made us feel like at home and gave us lots of great tips for a perfect stay (where to eat, which beaches to visit an even what to do in other islands). If you are reading this review as you are wondering whether this will meet your expectations, jut book! I cannot imagine how you could be disappointed! The town and the beaches are a short walk away from Helios. The furthest beach is also a must (talk to Giorgios the day before and you may be lucky to get a lift in the morning). The island exceeded our expectations both for the beauty of its beaches and for the quality of the restaurants. The hospitality at the hotel just made our stay absolutely special.

Room Tip: The room we stayed was on the right hand side of the complex (as you face it). It was very clean and...

If I could draw up a template for our perfect accommodation on a Greek Island, I would simply say "Helios Lipsi" The accommodation is immaculately clean and fresh, with most of the fittings hand made by Georgios who is a fantastic host. Despite filling the fridge ready for our arrival, we were treated to meal in the garden where we had the chance to meet our fellow guests - Greek hospitality at it's best. When we refused Georgios' offer of a lift to the nearest beach, he offered to loan me his quad bike for the morning - unbelievable ! Lipsi is a wonderful peaceful island, and Helios is the perfect choice. Missing it already.

Upon arriving a friendly man named Giorgio picked us up and made us feel very welcome. He could not offer to help or do more for us from the moment we arrived until he took us reluctantly on our last day to the ferry to leave. Whilst staying there he made sure our fridge was stocked with beer, cooked for us regularly - a highlight being the goat he put on a spit accompanied by the best Greek salad. He is truly an amazing host. Our last night he took us to a bar and shouted us drinks and food all night! As for lipsi it has amazing beaches, nice restaurants and a very relaxed and go-slow vibe. If you are looking to relax and unwind I encourage you to go to lipsi and stay with Giorgio!

Giorgios is a WONDERFUL host and nothing is too much trouble for him. He fills your fridge with goodies on arrival and he will announce unexpected feasts of an evening, he will drive you to beaches on the back of his quad bike and tell you anything you want to know about the island. He is the kindest most enthusiastic host. The apartments are comfortable, good beds and showers. The island is PEACEFUL and RELAXED with several delicious beaches. For a special treat stop in and say hello to Costa's who runs an organic farm on the road to kokolhaura, He will pour you a cup of mint tea as he supplies you with figs, cheese, honey, wine and fresh veg from his land, take it back to Helios and make yourself a PERFECT super.

Room Tip: We travelled as a couple and georgios put us in the seperate studio recommended for a couple.

We booked for a couple of nights but instead stayed a whole week so we could enjoy Helios to the maximum. The apartment is very good as is the location: good view, just outside the village. Giorgio is a fantastic host who never stopped helping us, giving us food, etc. When we arrived the frigde was full with goodies. What a welcome!

We booked Helios Lipsi just because of the favourable Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. As so many others have mentioned, it is the proprietor Giorgis who makes all the difference with nothing being too much trouble for him. We visited in June and the apartment was perfect for our family of five. The fridge was stocked with enough food to get us started - eggs, ham, cheese, bread, yoghurt, water, beer, wine, butter - and Giorgis was always ready to give us a lift to the best beaches, something we were really grateful for when seven-year-old legs were getting tired. Every few days, Giorgis would cook a dinner for all the residents - we could have eaten in our rooms but it was a wonderful opportunity to sit with other travellers and Giorgis and share stories. At the end of our stay, he had travelled to Leros as a family member was ill but insisted on returning on the day of our departure to drive us to the ferry. The apartment was clean with comfortable beds, the shower had enough hot water and the view to Lipsi town across olive trees and sunflowers was always a joy each morning. It was a walk of around 15 mins to Katsadia and Xoxlacura beaches (make sure to try Dilaila Taverna at Katsadia beach) and Kosta's organic farm. If we return to the Greek Islands, we will definitely come back to this beautiful island and Helios Lipsi.

Room Tip: All of the units are excellent.
